The annual convention was moved in later years to Nashville, TN, and then to Louisville, KY, where it was held for 20 years. NQC is currently held at the LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge, TN.
Early Bird pricing went into effect today for NRB 2023. NRB 2023 happens May 22-25, 2023 at the Orlando World Center Marriott.

Award-winning artist Meredith Andrews shares a passionate ballad of hope and relief with “Carry The World,” available 9/30. Reminding listeners that we weren’t meant to shoulder the weight of the burdens we bear, the timely track suggests that there is One willing and able to carry them for us — One who holds the whole world in His hands. Andrews originally introduced the song in Spanish on her first full-length Spanish language album, Ábrenos Los Cielos. Now available in English for the first time, the poignant offering invites weary listeners to cast their cares on a God who is capable of great things.
“Carry The World” was written by Meredith Andrews, Ryan Ellis, and Andrew Bergthold; and produced by Andrew Bergthold.
